Main entrance and front of Yale SOM
The building has been called
"the newest version of the Starship Enterprise"
Yale's campus has long been known as a living history of architecture (three centuries' worth.) Some of the world's greatest architects -- James Gamble Rogers, Louis I. Kahn, Eero Saarinen, Philip Johnson, Cesar Pelli, and Frank Gehry -- are represented in its buildings, which in various ways express "the struggle to balance collective identity and individual expression -- the essential struggle of life in a democracy."

And below ... the University of Glasgow Art History
building, where I did a graduate programme
in decorative arts
Hmmm ... looking at it now, it doesn't seem so bad ...
just kind of dark and stodgy ...
Luckily, it was very close to
The Willow Tea Room, designed in 1903
